This is a very old recipe of mine. Just a pretty and delicious way to serve that yummy summer corn! You could probably sub frozen corn, but I don't think canned corn would be a very good substitute for this recipe. It would probably be very mushy.

This pie is a fantastic way to use fresh corn in the summer. It's layers of goodness. The fresh corn separates from the filling to create a sweet layer of corn that tastes awesome on top of the buttery crust. Cheesy and fabulous, the creamy layer is similar to a quiche consistency. In fact, the pie is sort of like a fresh corn quiche. A must try, this is a fancy side dish or a light lunch.

Note: Watch the crust to make sure the edges do not burn. You may need to use a pie crust shield or wrap a bit of aluminum foil around the edges to prevent burning. The Test Kitchen
